Parañaque City is just like any other city, large crowds of people, lots of noise pollution, and multiple pathways that may deter even the most adventurous. The one good thing is it is safer than Manila, which is the capital in the Philippines. Though incomparable to the activities to be done in the capital, Parañaque houses several places for leisure, such as Solaire, and several malls to visit and explore.

Parañaque City is close to different malls and leisure activities like the Manila Ocean Park, Star City and MOA Arena. This city is also the home of NAIA, Manila’s primary airport. The city is peaceful enough so people moving in wouldn’t have problems regarding their safety. On the other side, the city is also prone to flooding during wet season because of the numerous creeks and rivers surrounding the city.

Parañaque City is in the south of Metro Manila. It is the city which is known as the fashion capital of Metro Manila and is home to the largest fashion boutiques and shops. The crime rate in Parañaque is moderate.

Parañaque is a place where there are a lot of historical sites and buildings like St. Andrew Church and the Don Galo bridge. Furthermore, residents are quite hospitable and caring when it comes to new people. The downside is that the crime rates are quite high and the police departments don’t respond that quickly.

If one decides to move to Parañaque, know the largest subdivision in the country is located here and it is called BF Homes. One must also know about the laws, such as various one way streets and keeping your dog on a leash. One must know some Tagalog. Although a lot of residents speak English, it is still important to familiarize oneself with the language.

Parañaque City has a good mayor who cares for the well-being of his constituents. There is peace and order here and most people follow the law. We also have a good number of business establishments like malls, banks, markets, schools and hospitals so there are a lot of good employment opportunities.
